Dueling Covers

The sequel to the CSS Appomattox is coming along. I have nearly finished the first draft. So I spent some time on the cover. I had a friend work on it (Thanks Marshall Thomas). Anyway, Thomas Devareaux and crew are assigned to assist the British in the troubles they are having in the Sudan. Here are the covers that I have so far for the new novel.

So which one do you like best? Anything I should change?

Next Projects

The Last Airship to Khartoum is winding down. I should have the first draft completed by month end. Then it is off to editing land.

So while that is happening, I was going to pick up on two old projects and work on them.

The first is Eliazar's Promise. This project is about an archeology team that finds an unexpected scroll in a cave near Hebron. The archeology team is attacked by terrorists and must find a way to escape and reveal their findings to the world. What's in the scroll? A testament of one of Abraham's followers - Eliazar.

The other is a modern take of a guy just trying to make his commute to work on a Thursday morning. But instead of a normal day, he finds himself in the middle of a terrorist attack.

So which story interests you more? I am willing to push forward with the one you are more interested in.

Short Lived Triumphs

As soon as the short story went off of the free promotion, interest seems to have vanished. It was quite fun while it lasted though.

Anyway, I have been making great progress lately with the sequel to CSS Appomattox. I should be able to have the first draft completed by month's end.
